26 Dec 2018

The Vietnam Coast Guard (VCG) temporarily detained an oil tanker over unaccounted products in its tanks on Monday (24 December) at about 8:52pm (Vietnam time).

An initial statement from Captain Vu Nang Huy of the Yen Dinh 0025 stated the vessel was transporting about 120 thousand litres of ‘DO’ oil, according to the VCG.

However, he could not produce documents proving the legality of the oil onboard.

As such, the VCG decided to temporarily seize and bring the ship to port to continue investigations in accordance with the law.
